The Honors Experience

Asking questions and never settling for less than the best are standard practice for honors students. Here’s how the honors experience at St. Norbert takes shape.

Honors Year One
First-year honors students live as neighbors in Bergstrom Hall and enroll in Honors 101, the common course that fulfills the intensive writing component of the Core Curriculum program. 

Honors Years Two and Three
Students generally take one honors course in six of their eight semesters at St. Norbert College. These courses offer extensive interaction with a small group of other honors students meeting together with a professor. Twice during your four years, you may choose an honors tutorial, a study abroad experience, Honors global seminar, or student teaching abroad to fulfill an honors course requirement.  

In the spring semester of their sophomore year, many honors students enroll in Honors 301: Life After SNC. This course is designed to thoroughly prepare students considering post graduate studies.  

Honors Year Four
Senior honors students may choose to finish their honors course work through honors tutorials and/or honors-only classes.

For more detailed information about admission requirements, please visit the admission to the Honors Program webpage.
